in the air

Kevin C
your airplane awaits you, it flies flawlessly, loops, rolls, inverted. you will be impressed especially with your 60 OS on a 40 size airframe.

we could use a 1000 - 1250 mah 2 cell Lithium iron reciever battery and 10amp castle creations voltage regulator to be safer, and fly all day. we'll see if Bill can get us them.

IN THE AIR!

Is it Friday yet??? It is tough being away from The Best Track on the Planet™!!!

I might stop by and watch the cars go in circles today for the big oval show.



I'm thinking of buying a new motor for USGT. Let's start a motor debate. What's the best?

I would recommend a 21.5 turn

Settled, Brushless 21.5

If you are looking for a BRAND, i like Orion, lots of torque right out of the box, no rotors to swap, no bearing upgrades, no end plate milling, no need to de-wind to a 19.5 (?)

However, i currently run a revtech i bought used from a guy that is really good, sorry, no returns.

Any seconds on the Orion?

Luckily with on-road we don't have to do any of those oval-tricks, especially in USGT.

If anyone is interested I think we are going to sell our extra 07 xray. It's the one Kyle had been running, ex Cody W. car. We currently have it set up for usgt and can be sold as it sets with some extra parts minus the rec. Or as a roller let me know if anyone is interested.

I threw these away today. That is all. Just sayin'.


Don't worry, I saved a few, just in case.

I've been running a Novak 21.5 SS motor in USGT at R/Car. My straight speeds and lap times usually near the top every week. This is even running a front diff. Other motors may have better bottom or top end, but the Novak 21.5 SS seems to be a good overall motor.

----------

Got my onroad fix this weekend watching GrandAM and Indycar at Barber Motorsports park. The new Corvette Prototype cars look really good on the track. Here is a link on the Mcallister racing website for a 1/10 version of that car (http://www.mcallisterracing.com/index_files/Page592.htm). Can't wait for the Brickyard race to get a closer look at the GrandAm cars.

Love the new Indycar bodies or not, the racing this weekend was actually pretty good. There was passing in some unexpected places, good hard racing, Honda and Chevy both led late in the race, and Lotus had a car in the top 10 at the end.

----------

Looking forward to racing at the Rug this Friday. Just a reminder, NO RACING Sunday April 8, 2012 - Easter Sunday.
